Video: Picot Point Bind-Off #1

Characteristics: slow
Difficulty: Intermediate

This is an intermediate bind-off that makes little picots along the top of your knitting.

You can make the picot points however high you want. In tutorial I show you a 2-stitch picot bind-off, with added instructions for making the bind-off pointier.


To make a pointier or less-pointy picot, substitute the number of stitches you want in your picot for the “x” in the instructions below. In the instructions below, x=2.

  1. Setup: CO x sts on L needle with Knitted Cast-On.
  2. K1. Do not drop st off L needle.
  3. Place new st back on L needle. Work steps 1-2 twice.
  4. K1 tbl twice.

Similar bind-offs to this one are the Picot Point Bind-Off #2 and the Picot Hemmed Edge Bind-Off, which both have smaller picots.

My Opinion

I don’t love this bind-off because I don’t like how long it takes, but if you want to add a little points that don’t frill this one might be a good choice.
